Dolores Castilleja Gomez, 79, of New Braunfels Texas, left to be with the Lord on Monday, April 19, 2021, at Warm Springs Specialty Hospital in New Braunfels. She was born to Benito Castilleja and Ofelia Lopez Castilleja in New Braunfels, Texas on June 4, 1941.

Dolores or “Lola” Gomez was a long time resident of New Braunfels. She was a strong woman who spent many years raising a family of 8 children while in support of her late husband, Jacinto “Jack” Gomez, while he served in the U.S. Army. She was a loving and nurturing mother and grandmother. Lola was a hard worker in all areas of life. While raising a family she also spent many years working in the housekeeping industry. In addition, she dedicated many years of service to the Catholic Church and was a woman of unyielding faith. This strong faith was always evident in her as Lola never worried or stressed about anything in life no matter how difficult the circumstance. She had a refreshing presence as she was always full of joy with a smile on her face. She was well known for her ability to whip up a meal for any of her loved ones whether they were hungry or not. Lola enjoyed shopping with her daughters, granddaughters, sisters and was an avid telenovela watcher. She loved to spend time with her “crazy” sisters whether it was for morning coffee, pan dulce, or late night games of loteria. When in each other’s company, their love for each other was always evident as they were full of joy, smiles, and laughter. She was an admirable woman who was loved and cherished by so many. She will be greatly missed.

Our sincere condolences to the Gomez family. We have such fond memories of Lola and Uncle Jack working in the kitchen with the Guadalupano’s at OLPH and going to Monterrey Mexico on the bus to visit the basilica or to San Juan. They were both good friends to my extended family. Our prayers for strength and comfort go out to the family. She will be dearly missed.
